What a complex and beautiful question. One that has taken millennia to unfold, and will take millenia more to continue the discovery. It's so simple, and yet ever-changing. One thing's for sure, whatever "worship" is, God asks us to do it of Him (John 4, Exodus 20, Psalm 95, Psalm 150, Romans 12, Hebrews 12-13, Colossians 3, Ephesians 5, Matthew 4, and so on and so on).
That's a good question. If you're asking that, then you're probably in the right place.
This blog will be for worship leaders, worship team members, church-goers, curious people, senior pastors, atheists, musicians, students, songwriters, liturgists, and the like. In respect to worship, I hope to be able to understand, address, and speak to the perspectives of all kinds of people. After all, worship isn't a concept that only Christians understand, so everybody's sort of on the same page there.
Hi. I'm Ryan, and I'm a worship leader at Central Church in Baltimore, MD. Above most things, I'm passionate about people discovering, meeting with, and worshipping the one true God. Yes, there are thousands of others out there who are more passionate, more eloquent, more trained, more skilled, and more public than I will ever be. So why do I even bother sharing my thoughts on worship?
